The site is 5km west of Gorleston-on-Sea. Leave the main A12 (Yarmouth-Lowestoft) road at the junction with the A143 (Diss and Beccles). Follow signs to Burgh Castle and Gorleston as you leave the A12. At the first roundabout that you encounter after leaving the A12 take the first exit, signed to Burgh Castle and Bradwell. Follow this road out of the built-up area; when nearing Burgh Castle village, give way and turn right at a T junction where it joins Mill Road (following the brown sign and finger post indicating Burgh Castle). Shortly after passing the Queen’s Head pub on the right, turn left into Butt Lane. A very short distance along this road, you will see the Burgh Castle Roman Fort car and coach park on the right-hand side.
